Conserving for tomorrow's education
The Greene County Board of Education made a commitment in June 2012 to embrace energy conservation by implementing an Energy Conservation Policy. This policy recognizes that energy conservation is a shared responsibility of the School Board, administrators, faculty, staff, and students. A cooperative conservation effort is expected to save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year that will free up resources to educate our children.
